Just came across this video. What in the holy fuck is that? Those ground textures are on par with pre-popped in textures from Gears of War 1 or Halo 2. This is the 360 version.

lol some of the rubble looks like it was straight out ripped from an N64 game. Ryan said on I love Mondays that he had seen zero gameplay of this and now we know why. The character models arent that bad but man the environment is atrocious.

It looks as shit on ps3

#4 Posted by kingzetta (4307 posts) -

it's just a port of the DS version

By the way is this supposed to be a budget game? It's starting at $28.75 on GameSpot's store.

Oh my.

Clearly they're too busy working on Two Human to have put any effort into this.

The three protagonists of this game are so… so… videogamey.

Usually when I see someone ragging on the graphics in a game, I think they're just being an exaggerating asshole. But Jesus Christ, those are astonishingly low quality textures. Is it really that hard to just slap some straightforward concrete textures on the ground?

Oh boy.

#11 Posted by Slaker117 (4837 posts) -

Oh man. I'm not one to pick on a game just for the sake of it, but that seriously looks like an internal development build.

"Things Look So Bad Everywhere..." 15 GS

Perfect achievement right there! It's like they realized it but then decided not to give a shit!

#13 Posted by CornBREDX (5096 posts) -

Can't say I am surprised. I don't mean to be mean to them but this developer doesn't make good games.

That being said I am much more intrigued, hopefully its funny bad and not boring bad like that Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2.

We shall see.

Silicon Knights, making games for a world that fears and hates them.

#15 Posted by Commisar123 (1791 posts) -

Maybe the Xbox is just fucked? I find it hard to believe this wasn't noticed. Also why do the purifiers look so fucking stupid? Just take the designs from X-Force 2008

There are more textures on their crappy logo than this game. (yes I am aware they changed their logo to a 2D one, but holy hell that 3D one was hideous)

#17 Posted by captain_clayman (3320 posts) -

haha that achievement is PERFECT.

Wow, I usually scoff when people say current gen games look like last gen games, but this has to be from a couple gens ago. This is a gen-o-saur.

#19 Posted by BabyChooChoo (4390 posts) -

They should've just made another Too Human. hahaha, I'm just kidding

...they shouldn't be making games at all.

Yikes, so many extremely muddy textures.

I used to have respect for Silicon Knights.

#23 Posted by RE_Player1 (7558 posts) -

I've been playing it on PS3 and it looks just as bad there. It feels like a game that came out in 2006. Glad I rented it, if I paid full price I'd be pissed.

Those textures look way worse than a 2006 game.

I uh...wow that looks bad.

Agreed. Just awful.

#27 Edited by DougQuaid (1274 posts) -

So they just ported the Wii version to 360 and PS3? 
 
I don't know what's worse in that video; the game itself or the creeper playing it trying hard not to notice how completely shitty it is.

#28 Posted by MisterMouse (3547 posts) -

I was at first like "It doesn't seem too bad" ... and then I looked at the ground. and magneto's cape, and every other large surface.

#29 Posted by RuneseekerMireille (325 posts) -

Even after seeing the comments in this thread and being prepared for what I would see, I still instinctively thought it was pop-in. Until I realized that nothing was popping in...

Wow, that's terrible.

#30 Posted by jozzy (2042 posts) -

I am playing Resident Evil 4 HD at the moment so I am clearly not affraid of muddy textures, but that just looks.... horrid.

#31 Posted by supermonkey122 (815 posts) -

Dreamcast game.

#32 Posted by IBurningStar (2162 posts) -

That is some N64 looking shit right there.

#33 Edited by jorbear (2517 posts) -

Silicon Knights must have forgotten that they actually had to work to make a video game.

#34 Posted by Valames (726 posts) -

When I called it a gen-o-saur, I had to make one. So X-men Destiny is this. ^ Gen-O-Saur!!!!!!

#35 Posted by SlightConfuse (3963 posts) -

so this is a ps2 game right

i appreciate this.

Sucks about the game. I liked the concept. Now I just want to play Legends since I never played it before.

I'll even feel horrible purchasing this for 10 bucks, my god.
I keep hoping for a new X-Men Legends.

Pretty sure it's a bug.

NO..... What they should have made was Eternal Darkness 2 but I'm not even gonna get into that.

#40 Posted by Enigma777 (6071 posts) -

Good lord, that does look like complete shit. That text that pops up in the middle of the environments doesn't help either.

Me and you both. I loved X-Men Legends.

Silicon Knights is usually known for being overly ambitious, this shit looks more like Activision cutting the budget and making them release it 6 months ahead of schedule. Klepek, I expect a tell all after Activision liquidates SK and they all go their separate ways.

#43 Edited by august (3836 posts) -

They should have licensed the Unreal Engine oh wait.

#44 Posted by cstrang (2381 posts) -

Oh, man. That's pretty brutal.

Does Activision actually own a stake of the company? I think SK is largely being propped up by the Canadian taxpayer at this point.

Nope, SK jumps around between publishers. I'm mostly poking fun at Activision's usual response when something they own turns to shit. Though I wouldn't be surprised if Activision cut funding.

Dammit, I just want SK to go back to Nintendo and make another damn Eternal Darkness.

Remember when it was announced and it seemed like it could come out of nowhere and be amazing? Action-rpg where you create a character, give them powers, and become one of the X-Men. Dialogue trees and major decisions between... I don't know, some sort of meditation on racism.

Essentially, BioWare's third original franchise should be a superhero setting, and not Jade Empire or something else. Unless they wanted to do spies and do a better version of Alpha Protocol.

#48 Edited by Mr_Skeleton (5141 posts) -

This game looked terrible since the first trailer and it on;y got uglier with time.

At least it would be easy to port it to the PS2.

#49 Posted by TheHumanDove (2523 posts) -

Well they spent ten years on Too Human with no reward. They're probably just saying 'ok let's speed up this time'
